It’s one of life’s pleasures: having someone read to you. We’ve assembled a lineup of our most masterful poets in a little corner of the Festival devoted to the loveliness of listening. Grab a bite from our food stalls, put your feet up, and let our scribes take care of the rest.

Ada salah satu hal paling menyenangkan dalam hidup, yaitu mempunyai seseorang yang mau membacakan cerita untuk Anda. Kami telah mengumpulkan para penyair terbaik di salah satu sudut Festival kami yang didedikasikan sebagai ruang untuk memperdengarkan keindahan puisi mereka. Siapkan camilan yang bisa Anda beli di tenda-tenda makanan yang tersedia, segera melangkah ke sana, dan biarkan para ahli ini memberikan kejutannya.
